Haha ok Brad you're right - I'm not even going to try to explain this one away! I have been really delinquent.
Here's the current situation...I finished the trim on the columns, but I need to finish the top of the marquee. (I don't love the way the trim came out - I would do it differently if I had it to do over again. I would make the bottom more beefy and the top slimmer.) I'm also working on two more poster frames for the other side of the HT entrance.
I also found a cool metallic paint
for the door. I think I am going to use the steel gray color.
I haven't been completely stagnant though. My house is only 12 years old but previously belonged to an older couple...let's just say we had differing tastes. The place is a beige palace. Beige walls, beige carpets, beige CEILINGS. Yes, everywhere. So I have been working on that. I started with the master bedroom.Before:
I added LED recessed lights, crown molding, a new ceiling fan, blinds, in-wall speakers (much thanks to TMcG for some advice on that front) and painted. This pic was taken before the doors were painted and before I changed about a hundred hinges and door levers from brass to nickel. I have 1,000 sqft. of hardwood flooring going in the bedroom and living room next month, along with another 700 sqft. to be refinished. I hired that job out though!After:
I installed a powerbridge behind the TV but I still need to add an outlet in the closet where the electronics are housed (to the right).
Furniture is on the way as well. New bed, table for under the TV, and chair for between the windows.
Painters start in the rest of the house in 2 weeks. Yes, there's more beige. A lot of it.
